pressures and the uncertainties, and also other technology companies really did not have very good quarters as well. i thought the company did a very good job on execution, on cross control and market share gains. the fact that this company is grow revenues at 5.5% while its peers saw revenues decline 4.3% in the same time period, it really speaks to the market share gains that they're seeing and that the clear highlights to me were service provider video, retireless and data center all growing double digits nicely. >> kelly and i were talking about this earlier. cisco seems to sort of outperform -- seems to be an outliar. does well when others aren't and doesn't do well when others are. i'm wondering is that actually the case? because that's the appearance. and indeed whether we can take anything for the sector from this. >> i think the one thing that if you want to take away from cisco's quarter is that the u.s. enterprise for cisco grew 9%, versus 5% last quarter. that's the second quarter in a row where you saw acceleration. and this is a leading indicator for its broader businesses. th

groups, technology is probably best positioned under this new environment because, technology shares, technology companies, typically aren't very heavily regulated. so we don't expect any new increased regulation on tech shares. and among the 10 economic sector groups, technology companies have the lowest dividend yields. so that any increase in the dividend tax will impair them less than their couper parts. i think the only area where we could see tech companies stung would be if president obama's plan to tax foreign profits comes back to haunt the group because keep in mind, companies like microsoft and apple pay on average six or 7% in taxes. not 35 that the corporate tax rate is, largely due to the foreign posts. we'll have to see if president obama's going to go after those foreign profits. ashley: talking about dividend tax, what about muni bond? is that a good way to play that segment of the market? >> we think so. if tax, if tax rates are going up and the tax rates appear to be going up to the 36 or 39.6, then municipal bonds, those that offer tax exemption will be incrementa
of the information technology boom, creation of private credit and, therefore, rapid increase in tax revenues. and so what stephanie showed, this was something that was not forecast at the time. at the time those who were there in 2000 remember that the secretary of the treasury at the time was -- and the chairman of the federal reserve -- were talking about a 13-year horizon for the complete elimination of the public debt. and the congressional budget office was not forecasting that the information technology boom was an aberration that would come to an end, but it did. and from 2000 forward we were back into the much more normal position of the united states government running substantial budget deficits. and as the private sector rebuilt its financial position. so that's the first point is that long-term forecasts, the idea that one can control the future position of the debt and the deficit by actions taken today is an extremely tenuous and debatable idea. second point is that there are certain assumptions being made which create extremely ostensibly scary scenarios. those numbers that show and,
